Mezzotint Figure


Original copper plate mezzotint on Stonhenge cotton paper. Limited edition of 10. Hand printed by the artist with Charbonnel ink.

Mezzotinting is the process of texturing the entire surface of a copper plate, thereby starting with an entirely black print. From there the artist burnishes the surface to lighten areas, effectively working in reverse. The result is a print with exceptionally dark blacks and a soft, velvety texture.
